A little about me

My name is Mitch, and I like to party.

A lot about me

My name is Mitch Donaberger, and I am a creative director, designer and marketer based out of Philadelphia, PA. I grew up here (in Delaware County, if you're from the area), but I moved to Pittsburgh in 2006 to attend college. I ended up getting a job at a then-global ad agency named Mullen during my sophomore year, which resulted in my face-forward tumble into the advertising and design industries. I've been making things for companies big and small ever since.

My natural talent is for solving problems in creative ways - it's part of why I do what I do. But, at the same time, it's also helpful to be mindful of one's abilities. So, with that in mind, here's the stuff I can do, and the stuff that I'd need some more time to learn.

Professional Skillset

Physical Media

In 2016, I started working on a direct mail product. Since then, it turned into a $1mm/yr product. Letters, flyers or bespoke campaigns.

Weird Products

Unique, standout promotional products meant to open doors. Battery backups, pop-up books, decoder rings, to name a few.

Display

Display advertising is my backyard - I was raised on it, and helped build display products and best practices, from the ground up.

Dynamic Display

Regular images aren't enough anymore - clients demand dynamic HTML5 experiences. Unique ads for unique targets, with full heuristics.

UI / UX

I've built app UI and UXes for companies as small as a 2 seat medical startup to rebuilding an Enterprise software suite from scratch.

Creative Direction

I have a sixth sense for reading what clients want, and what would ultimately make them happy. A dozen testimonials can't be wrong.

Personal Skillset

Knowledge

I am a nerd, unapologetically. I will gladly go toe-to-toe with you on Simpsons trivia, any day. This makes me voraciously curious. I will not rest until I've figured it out.

A Drive to Create

Coming from a long lineage of artisans, creation is in my blood. I need to build things or I'll shrivel up and wither away.

Curiosity

I wanna know how EVERYTHING works. New industries, new products, even new contexts? No problem.
